Course summary

The course involves three main aspects:

  • the study of theories and ideas about media and cultural production in a global context
  • the critical analysis of cultural texts and practices from around the world
  • engagement in practical creative production.

The MA in Global Media and Culture seeks to explore the relationship between these three areas and to show how knowledge of each informs and influences the others. In addition, it will provide you with the skills necessary for academic study at an advanced level, either for those wishing to go on to further academic research, or as advanced preparation for those interested in pursuing careers in a range of media and culture industries.

The emphasis of the programme is the critical and analytical study of the contemporary global framework of media and cultural studies, the production and continuation of localised cultural identities within a global context, and a theoretically-informed approach to the creative production of media texts.

ASSESSMENT

The MA has a range of assessments, with options to specialise in the 2nd half of the year depending your own skills and strengths, or whether you want to focus on media analysis (producing an original dissertation) or creative practice (producing a short film, photography exhibit, or installation). Other assessments include posters, portfolios, presentations, essays, annotated bibliographies, and the creation of marketing campaigns.

CAREERS

The MA can lead to a range of career pathways, offering a range of transferable skills (in written and verbal communication) in addition to applied skills in media practice (including film-making and digital image manipulation). Alumni have pursued careers in journalism and the media and creative media industries, as well as marketing, human resources, and further postgraduate study.
